New Name . . .

Our Centre has a new name! Formerly known as the “Plough the Waves” Centre, our “Wood Islands Welcome Centre” reflects better our position as the first place visited after arriving by ferry from Nova Scotia.

Our Welcome Centre is home to the Wood Islands and Area Development Corporation — a Not-For-Profit community organization who owns and operates the Welcome Centre including the Wood Islands Lighthouse (tours and gift shop); a community room complete with full kitchen available for your special occasions; and a community Liquor Store Agency.  Our new Commissary (in the Liquor Store) offers fresh coffee and some “provisions” you might have left behind such as BBQ, campfire, food, books, or personal items.  Pop in to see if we have what you need, or just come for a cup of fresh coffee or tea.

Joining us here at the Welcome Centre is a provincial Visitor Information Centre;  an “all-you’ll-ever-need” candy and ice cream store, The Sweet Factory;  Lady Slipper Express Café; Island Gold Honey; and Ellis Decker — resident wood worker in the freight shed.  We are the Trail Head (Mile 0) of the Confederation (Trans Canada) Trail where you can enjoy a short, tranquil hike (or bike ride) in any season.

Welcome to Wood Islands and to Prince Edward Island — the “Birthplace of Canada!”
